First injury report features Favre's ankle

Get used to it, folks.  Every week, the injury report likely will include a reference to Brett Favre’s oil-can ankle, which per Peter King already is getting shot up with lubricant.

The first injury report of the year has been published by the league, and Favre fully participated in practice with his chronic ankle problem.

Rookie cornerback Chris Cook (knee) and defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy (knee) didn’t practice.  Cornerback Cedric Griffin (knee), running back Toby Gerhart (knee), safety Jamarca Sanford (ankle), and center John Sullivan (calf) participated on a limited basis.

Griffin tore an ACL on the opening kickoff of overtime in the 2009 NFC title game.  He hasn’t been expected to play in Week One.  With Cook possibly unable to play, the Vikings could use Griffin.

Perhaps the most amazing thing on the report is what’s not on the report.  Linebacker E.J. Henderson is 100 percent and ready to play after suffering a gruesomely broken leg last December.

For the Saints, linebacker Stanley Arnoux (ankle) and running back Chris Ivory (knee) didn’t practice.  Participating on a limited basis were cornerback Tracy Porter (knee), tackle Zach Strief (knee), and linebacker Jonathan Vilma (groin).  Receiver Marques Colston (kidney), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), and safety Pierson Prioleau (knee) fully participated.

The Vikings-Saints injury report was published on Monday because the teams play Thursday night.  Typically, practice participation reports are issued on Wednesday and Thursday, with Friday’s version also including the final designations regarding a guy’s chances of playing — probable, questionable, or doubtful.

    Rumor has it Bernard Berrian may have been injured on the set of Minute To Win It. Show airs Tuesday at 8, definitely going to check it out.

    This is not Detroit, man. This is the Super Bowl!

  4. BENCHTJACK says: Sep 6, 2010 5:31 PM

    Florholyio, you know the Vikings are required to list Favre’s ankle or face a large fine. How about picking on someone else for a change.?

  5. El Guapo says: Sep 6, 2010 5:35 PM

    Injury reports have become an absolute joke, the only real info anyone can take from it is if someone is playing (out) or not. “Questionable” is exactly the way I feel about the entire process. Isn’t it true that these reports mostly benefit Vegas odds makers and the people that play fantasy football?

  6. Bun McSticky says: Sep 6, 2010 5:35 PM

    Yeah, a Favre reference!

  7. Feetwet says: Sep 6, 2010 5:40 PM

    They should shoot up Lord Favre’s ankle with Marvel Mystery Oil. Works on all kinds of ancient machinery.

  8. Route36West says: Sep 6, 2010 5:45 PM

    You talk about people not giving u credit well maybe you should give some back. This is Sheftlers story he was talking about it this morning.

    Lord Favre can lead the Vikings to the Super Bowl with only one good wheel.
    The greatest QB to ever play the game has more talent, willpower, fortitude, and “it” than any other player in the league.

  10. bump says: Sep 6, 2010 5:46 PM

    OCA ,,, favre will need a few CPT (completed pass touchdown) to his own team ,, sure the saints will get a CPT of the own score 38-31 saints ,,, for the vikqueens OCA =oil can ankle ,,they tend to be a little slow LMAO

  11. joetoronto says: Sep 6, 2010 5:48 PM

    Good work, Florio!
    You found a way to talk about Favre, good stuff.
    Now call him a diva for being on the injury list.

  12. YOOPERBILL says: Sep 6, 2010 6:01 PM

    Come Friday morning Favres old body is going to feel like his ankle does now,sore and getting sorer,before long he may even contemplate pain killers so he can sleep at night,Thursday night he will have visions of Saints dancing in his dreams when he hits the rack.

  13. nutbuster says: Sep 6, 2010 6:12 PM

    I believe it is time to talk to the Vicodin guy again. There is nothing quite like a pill and some chill, if you know what I mean.
    yours truely, Brett Lorenzo Favre

  14. ICEWALKER says: Sep 6, 2010 6:14 PM

    At 41 it’s pretty good that only his ankle is listed. I know some men way younger than that who have trouble walking much less playing a football game.
    That’s mostly because they are fat. North Carolina has a bunch of people like that. But still, look at what he can do at 40.
    And he’s done it week in and week out. 20 seasons.

  15. sniperhare says: Sep 6, 2010 6:16 PM

    Every coach does this, the Pats and Colts almost always list some injury to one of their players when it’s non existent.

  16. JimmySmith says: Sep 6, 2010 6:21 PM

    The Vikings are probably ordering lubricant in 55 gallon drums, that way there will be enough for Favre’s ankle and Chilly’s puckered brown eye.
    The cross-dressing chauffuer is required by NFL regulations to go thru the sham of an injury report so let’s not blame him for this when there are so many other areas where the blame is all his.

  17. Ravenmaniac says: Sep 6, 2010 6:21 PM

    Dont worry after Thursday…this will be the last week Favre is on an injury report….or a roster….

    Floio, what did you expect the Vikings injury list to look like? I’m beginning to think this site is a waste of time. You would bash Favre if he donated millions of dollars to a worthy cause.

    Maybe Sean Payton can give Favre some Vicodin… or whoever it was in that organization that was stealing drugs.

    Get used to it folks. Every week, Favre will text a picture of his crank to Florio.

  28. sand0 says: Sep 6, 2010 7:17 PM

    Only on PFT would do you get edgy analysis like this. If Favre is receiving treatment the team MUST put him on the report or pay a fine. We know about the ankle lube story. Put two and two together.
    This “story” seems to be dogging on Favre or the Vikings for doing something that they are required to do. Damn Vikings and their not cheating ways.

  29. Charles Wood says: Sep 6, 2010 7:17 PM

    First off… Favre didn’t look too sharp in the Preseason game against the Seahawks. 2 pics and a fumble- the Viking o-line looks mediocre at best. But he is- the greatest QB to have ever played the game… winning a SB and breaking all of those records while a GREEN BAY PACKER.
    Speaking of ass kicking- all the experts are picking GB to throttle the Queens this season. I suspect Lord Favre will have to remove his shirt to take a shit after Clay Matthews gets to him.

  30. Phil Wright says: Sep 6, 2010 7:21 PM

    Zangy: I’m still laughing; some big snaps to you sir.

  31. Roscoe P. Coaltrain says: Sep 6, 2010 7:29 PM

    Pervy is the man for that blast at the top of this thread! Since favre is is 41 now he can patent a new improved WD-41 for his ankle. But I really think he is playing this ankle thing up to fool a few slow brains out there. He’s going to fly all over and burn those saints bank on it. The saints looked very out of sync in preseason and sync IS what preseasons for. I guess X won’t mark the spot with sharper out anyways!

    Ther’s nothing wrong with Favre’s ankle.
    He’s just pulling a McNabb and getting his excuse lined up early.

    Damn… gonna take a doctor to un-super-glue your lips off his ass.

  36. Charles Wood says: Sep 6, 2010 7:45 PM

    Roscoe… have you been eating out of Flash’s bowl again? YOU ASS HAT! I suppose you think the Vikes were insync this preseason. It was fun watching the 49ers run the length of the field with Alex Smith, no Crabtree and no V. Davis. It was fun watching Lord Favre tossing 2 pics and fumbling against the Seahawks. About as much fun as front row seats at “Nsync” concert.
    On a side note… I bet Green Bay’s 59 points on the Colts were just an aberration.

  37. connie says: Sep 6, 2010 7:50 PM

    favre is another a__ hole like ben. Hope they both get knocked out of a game for the season.

  38. Oakley Freak says: Sep 6, 2010 7:51 PM

    I’m Probable to wake up tomorrow, and Questionable to go to work. lol

  39. bump says: Sep 6, 2010 8:03 PM

    I would expect lord favre to play ok,, he did it in the last meeting only one thing ,, he was either on his ass or throwing interception ,,, and AP fumbling ,,, is this vikqeens second super bowl in 8 months ??? WOW

  40. mikemcsaint says: Sep 6, 2010 8:23 PM

    Favre was addicted to Vicodin long before Payton was ever ACCUSED of stealing them. Once an addict, always an addict.

  41. clintcooper says: Sep 6, 2010 8:45 PM

    Okay. I officially hate the preseason. I’m so f*cking tired of valuable players getting injured in games that are essentially meaningless. I say shorten the preseason to 2 or 3 games.

  42. Brewdogg says: Sep 6, 2010 9:07 PM

    Gotta give Zangy some props for that one… Well done!!
    Now turn that wit on another team please.
    Please??

    Charles wood. You have an nsync poster in your room still don’t you? Way too many comments about that band in your post. But you may be correct about the sync of the Vikings as well. but that doesn’t retract my statement that the saints looked out of sync. favre is all about drama and him playing up the ankle is highly possible. He just got to camp when he played 1 set of downs at San Fran. Brees and his guys have had more practices together. Plus the saints have the horrible cloud of expected defending SB champ hype they have to live up to every game. I don’t have a dog in this fight just looking at the scenario. And the packers are going to be a force that Rodgers guy is amazing. I see why they let favre go. Now that I have pissed everyone off by being a realist, I will finish watching this Boise state clinic on ESPN.

  45. essdog says: Sep 6, 2010 9:35 PM

    Ok, Florio. So your criticism of the old man is that he’s gonna use feeling sore as an excuse on a weekly basis to justify his poor play (which has yet to occur in a gross capacity).
    Here’s a question: what would you cite as being the root cause of your lack of journalistic and literary integrity/comfort in personal attacks on people that work infinitely harder at their profession than you could ever fathom?

  46. DailyNorseman says: Sep 6, 2010 9:59 PM

    It was fun watching the 49ers run the length of the field with Alex Smith, no Crabtree and no V. Davis.
    More fun than it was watching Matt Hasselbeck and Jake freaking Delhomme go up and down the field against that “amazing” Packer defense?
    Man, Viking haters are stupid people.

    On another side note, I guess those that follow the Green Bay Fudgepackers conveniently forget that Detroit won every game in the preseason then went 0-16 in the regular season…..
    Preseason means nothing dolt!

    Wait. We aren’t allowed to have NSYNC posters in our rooms?

    NO CUSHING TAKE THE POSTER DOWN. You can cover it up with Justin Beiber though. At least you will be in style with the kids.

  53. Reggies jukemove says: Sep 7, 2010 12:18 AM

    Who cares, he’s playing and I can’t wait till Thursday. A day off work to tailgate and watch the game. And for the fool that said we don’t look like were in “Sync”, I don’t think you watched their preseason at all.
